IN THE NEWS A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

A spiritual view of a political agenda

The Republican and Democratic Party conventions in the US presidential race have come and gone, watched with interest not only by Americans but people around the globe. Two candidates are history makers: Barack Obama, as the first black individual to be nominated as a candidate for the US presidency, and John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin, the first female vice presidential candidate ever nominated by the Republican Party.

As the candidates travel around the country, striving to persuade voters that they are the best and that the other team won't be nearly as effective, the charges and countercharges are flying. For some voters, telling the difference between warped truth and wholesale fiction isn't any easier than it was during the primary contests. These battles can be discouraging and divisive—even confusing. But by taking the discussion to a higher level, to spiritual ground, we can find inspiration, as well as some clear insights, into how to make choices as election day approaches.
